Best adventure movie mistakes of 1989

Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade picture
Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade mistake picture

Plot hole: When Indy is stepping on the letters at the end, trying to spell out God's name, he steps on J, incorrectly, causing it to collapse. When he falls through, however, he grabs onto another letter so as not to fall down. The letters he grabs onto and pulls himself up are an L and a Y, which are not in the word Iehova, so should have collapsed too. (01:46:20)

Continuity mistake: The floating toys on the stool by Dana's tub disappear when the water becomes pink goo.

Back to the Future Part II mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Notice Marty's hair in the scene when he's playing "Johnny B. Goode." It's quite larger than when he says, some seconds later, "I guess that you're not ready for it yet." That's because when he says that, it's a recycled shot from the original BTTF, whereas most shots showing he's playing the guitar are newly made for BTTF2. However, Marty's hair is considerably longer in the new shots.

The Abyss picture

Continuity mistake: Early in the film Bud throws his wedding ring down the latrine and then retrieves it with his right hand so it is covered with the blue disinfectant. In a (much) later scene, Bud has a blue right hand, despite not having had one in the intervening period. (01:44:48)

Licence to Kill picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene on the plane you see Bond hanging at the door on the right side of the plane, in the next shot you see the plane making a left turn, in the following shot Bond is still hanging on the right-side door. Shouldn't he have fallen into the plane ?

Troop Beverly Hills picture

Continuity mistake: At the patch ceremony, Chica goes over to Phyllis to get some food and she has her patches on. The patches weren't given out until the next scene.

Weekend at Bernie's picture

Continuity mistake: Right before Richard discovers that Bernie is dead and Larry is talking about drugs becoming a career, "I watch the news. I read." There is a side/back view of Larry talking and neither his gestures or his mouth line up with what he is saying.

Erik the Viking picture

Revealing mistake: During the Hy Brasil sinking sequence you can see a horizontal line in the water in the background, this is the edge of the water tank they used to film this sequence. It's also visible in several shots from the longship.

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure picture

Continuity mistake: At one point, when they time-travel away from "1,000,000 B.C.", Bill is on the left inside the phone booth and Ted is on the right. When the camera switches away, then back, they've changed sides.

Honey I Shrunk The Kids picture

Revealing mistake: When Nick is being sucked out of the hole/cave, you can see the wires visible from his waist. (01:20:35)

The Wizard picture

Character mistake: In the finals of Video Armaggeddon the compere keeps making comments such as "Jimmy loses a life and starts over in world two", "Laura finishes world two", "Lucas finishes world two". All three times the relevant person is actually in World 1 - Level 3. In Fact at no point are any of the competitors in World 2 and the only time any of them is out of World 1 is when Jimmy uses the warp to access World 4.

GameBlade
A Grand Day Out with Wallace and Gromit picture

Continuity mistake: When Wallace races out to get the crackers Gromit is seen spinning in his chair, to the right of the screen is the handbrake in the down position. When the ship blasts off Gromit realises he's left it on and puts it from the up position to the down position. (00:08:30 - 00:09:20)

Sanguis
The Trial of the Incredible Hulk picture

Continuity mistake: When Banner changes into Hulk in the subway station, his beard is gone. When Banner changes back after his "Hulk-out" his beard is back. (00:16:00 - 00:18:00)
